For Mateusz as an extreme sports enthusiast and adventure seeker, it has all started with capturing skateboarders and BMX riders when he was 17. That’s when he has found his deep love for a moving image. After several years he decided to get further into filmmaking and decided to study cinematography at AFiT in Warsaw. After graduating from there he wanted to develop even more. He finished cinematography at Ravensbourne University in London with many short films, music videos, and documentaries under his belt. Then Mateusz got into National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield but shortly after this, moved back to his motherland. He’s now based in Warsaw, Poland where he constantly grows while working on various, challenging projects as a director of photography and also as a camera operator.


Openness, ambition, and hard work are Mateusz’s trademarks. His keen eye pays attention to every detail and skilfully documents the surrounding reality – or fantasy.
